5. Cancellation Scheme
Hendra Holiday Park offers two types of cancellation scheme cover, Standard and Enhanced.
Our Standard Cancellation Scheme premium is automatically applied to your booking unless you specifically choose otherwise. Your deposit payment will be deemed payment, or part payment towards, the Cancellation Scheme premium. You can also opt for the enhanced cancellation cover if you wish to do so. We strongly advise you to take one of our cancellation schemes as no refunds are given without it. Any cancellation requests have to be received in writing prior to commencement of your holiday.
Standard Cancellation Scheme
On written confirmation of cancellation of the entire party at least 6 weeks prior to commencement of your holiday, we will refund all monies paid, minus booking fee and cancellation scheme fee. Between 6 weeks prior to arrival and your arrival date Hendra will only refund if cancellation is due to any of the following: death, serious illness or redundancy of a member of the booked party. Please note, that the claim must be in writing and supported by the relevant documents. In case of a successful claim, the refund will be for all monies paid, minus booking fee and cancellation scheme fee. Our acknowledgement is evidence that we have received your notification.
Enhanced Cancellation Scheme

Between 4 weeks and 2 weeks prior to your arrival date, on written confirmation of cancellation of the entire party for any reason, we will offer a booking credit or a date change so you can take your holiday at a later date, within the next 12-month period. Please note, extra charges may be applicable if the date that you move the booking to is more expensive than the date originally booked, if the date that you move the booking to is less expensive, the difference will be held as a booking credit. If a booking credit is opted for, the credit will be equal to all monies paid, minus booking fee and cancellation scheme fee, and will be valid for holidays booked within the next 12-month period; please note, the value of any credit note will not be refunded if the subsequent booking is cancelled.

Our cancellation scheme covers you until you arrive on site, after which, refunds cannot be given if for any reason even if you should leave early. We strongly recommend you take out your own holiday insurance to cover this.
6. Who We Cater For
Hendra Holiday Park is a family park and caters for families and couples only. We do not accept non-family orientated groups, or singles unless by prior arrangement. Even numbered mixed parties will only be accepted at Hendra’s discretion, and a security deposit may be required. If you haven’t made a group booking and arrive in a group, we may ask you to leave the park without a refund. In certain circumstances, Hendra will accept bookings from clubs, school groups or similar. A single person supplement may be charged at the rate of one extra adult per day during peak periods.
7. Group Bookings
Hendra only caters for families and couples, as per the terms above. Regardless of whether separate bookings have been made, members of the same family, and/or friends who book multiple lodges, holiday homes or pitches will be considered as a group. This includes any guests who live together at the same address, guests who are previously known to each other, guests who are traveling together, or guests who are traveling together for the same purpose such as to or from a local event. You are required at the time of booking to make us aware if you are traveling as part of a group that occupies a total of 3 or more accommodations or pitches.
If for whatever reason you have not made us aware that you are part of a group and arrive in a group, or are pre-known to each other on arrival, Hendra reserves the right to ask you to leave site without a refund. On the occasion that we do accept your group booking, we may ask you for a pre-paid security deposit prior to your arrival on site.
When using any of our spaces for socialising, yourself and your party are responsible for adhering to the following advice. As Hendra is a family friendly site and we ask that you be respectful of others during your holiday. When in large groups, please maintain a respectful distance from other pitches, and treat other guests with kindness so everyone can have a good time. We also ask that you are mindful of noise levels during the daytime, and adhere to our strict 10pm noise policy in the evenings.
Any breaches of our behaviour policy will be treated seriously. If at any point during your visit, your group is disrespectful of other guests or the site, or any anti-social behaviour is displayed, we reserve the right to tell you and your entire party to leave the site with immediate effect without any refunds.
Our priority is to provide a fun and enjoyable holiday for all, and we hope you can work with us to make sure everyone has an amazing holiday at Hendra.
Please see our ‘With Friends’ section for details on guaranteeing pitches allocated together.

If you booked through an agent, promotion or special offer, please refer to your confirmation for payment due dates and terms as these may be different from our terms.
If you have given us your e-mail address, we will send out a payment reminder e-mail a few days before your payment is due. We do not send reminder letters, but your payment due date is written on your confirmation for your reference. If there are any issues with your holiday payment, please notify us at the earliest opportunity so we can discuss this with you.
If your payment is late, we will notify you of non-payment. Non- payment will attract a non-negotiable late payment charge of £20.00 on all bookings.

All bookings made within 10 weeks of arrival must be paid in full at the time of booking.
12. Payments By Cheque
It is possible to pay for your holiday by cheque provided the cheque is received by us and cleared in advance of your payment due date.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘Hendra Holiday Park’ and your holiday booking reference should be written on the back to identify the booking to which it relates.
If your cheque is returned to us by the bank as ‘unpaid’, we will charge a £10 fee to cover the actual costs incurred by us.

Depending on the amendment, the cost of the holiday may increase or decrease; no refunds can be offered where a decrease in price leads to an overpayment. In such circumstances a booking credit will be offered.

We accept well behaved dogs in some of our Mawgan, Whipsiderry, Porthminster and Godrevy caravans. Only certain caravans in these ranges are dog friendly and these are indicated on the park map. Unless a holiday home specifically states it is pet-friendly, pets will not be accepted in the unit. Our bookings team can provide further advice as required.
We also have some touring fields for pets; Pine, Tamarisk, Fairway and Chestnut field. However, subject to requirement, please note, we do reserve the right to allow dogs in any field if circumstances permit. If there is a reason you cannot be located near dogs, please let us know so that we can make a note on your booking to this effect.
Dogs must be pre-booked, and a charge applies (see the current tariff for charges). Please also confirm the breed of dog you would like to bring with you at the time of booking.

Please note that you won’t be able to take your pet into our entertainment venues, restaurants or public areas, including the Oasis Fun Pool indoor pool and outdoor pool. However, they are permitted outside the Terrace Restaurant. Dogs are not permitted to stay overnight in vehicles on site of your lodge, holiday home or pitch, and should not be left alone inside any accommodation for prolonged periods of time.
We provide a dog walking area on site which is located adjacent to Laurel and Gannel View (please see park map).
If you arrive with a pet that had not been added to your booking or a dog breed that is not accepted by Hendra or as described at the time of booking, Hendra reserves the right to turn away the booking without any refunds offered. By management discretion, an additional fee may be charged if a pet is found in accommodation that is not pet friendly.
We accept all guide dogs, and they are permitted in all accommodation types free of charge. They are also allowed in all our facilities. Please note that we cannot guarantee to guests with allergies that a registered guide dog has not been in an accommodation type that is listed as non-pet friendly.
26. Park Behaviour
We would like all our guests to enjoy their holiday with us here at Hendra. We therefore reserve the right to refuse, or terminate, some bookings, if we think a person will compromise the enjoyment of other guests or the wellbeing of staff.
If you are unruly or antisocial whilst staying on the park, you will be required to leave immediately without a refund, along with the rest of your booking party under the discretion of the Park Manager if deemed necessary. This type of behaviour includes, but is not limited to, any discrimination against, or harassment of anyone in relation to their sex, race, colour, religion, religious or philosophical belief, nationality, age, ethnic origin, relationship status, disability, sexual orientation, or gender re-assignment.
The company reserves the right to terminate any booking at any time, without compensation or refund.

If you are affected by noise during your stay, please call or text security on 07967 852152.
28. Check In And Check Out Times
Check in is available from 8am to collect your membership and pool passes, you can then use the facilities on site.
If you are camping or touring you will gain access to your pitch from 12 noon, subject to availability and prevailing conditions.
Holiday homes are ready from 5pm, unless you have booked a Meadow Lodge, or added early check-in. Early check-in will be at an extra charge and this is subject to availability and payment. Where an early check-in has been paid for and confirmed, we will endeavour to have your accommodation ready at the agreed time, but this may not always be possible. Where we are unable to offer the accommodation at the earlier check-in time, we will offer a refund of the early check in surcharge only.
Check-out is 10am on your day of departure, however you are welcome to use the facilities until 2pm. We do not offer any late check-outs and if you fail to vacate you accommodation/pitch in time, a charge will apply.
29. Late Arrivals
If you are going to be late arriving for your holiday home or pitch, please notify us at the earliest opportunity. If you do not contact us, the unit you have booked will only be held until noon the day after the booked arrival date (provided full payment has been received) after which time we may re-let without notice and without a refund.
If you are going to arrive for a holiday home booking after reception has closed, the warden will have your key.
If you are arriving for a camping/touring booking, due to our noise policy, only arrivals before 9pm will be permitted to pitch up. We reserve the right not to permit pitching up after dark, you will be directed to a car parking area/holding field until reception opens the following day.
30. Choosing Your Pitch or Holiday Home
It is possible to choose a specific pitch or caravan number prior to arrival and subject to availability. We charge a fee to choose a pitch number. Please note, we may restrict specific pitch/caravan availability to Saturday to Saturday bookings only, at certain times of the year. Whilst we will try our best to ensure you are allocated the pitch requested, in some circumstances we may be unable to offer this. In such cases we will offer a refund of the specific pitch charge only.
Please note, pitch preference is also subject to provision of your unit dimensions as the unit must fit safely on the pitch (see ‘unit sizes’ section).
31. With Friends
It is possible to add ‘With Friends’ to your booking if you would like to be with friends and family. There is a charge per unit booked to secure this.
If you require two or more pitches together, we strongly recommend this option. Without adding ‘With Friends’ we cannot guarantee that units will be together.
You will all need to book the same type of unit and request the, ‘With Friends’ option when booking. Each party will need to add this to their booking and each party must provide the booking reference number of all parties they would like to be next to, so we can arrange this for you.
Please note we can only accept a maximum of 4 bookings within any particular party. Larger party enquiries may on occasion be accepted, at the discretion on the management. This restriction is to help protect the family environment and the enjoyment of other guests. Consequently, the behaviour of linked, ‘with friends’ bookings must be in keeping with the rest of the site.
Whilst we will try our best to ensure you are allocated the pitch next to each other, in some circumstances we may be unable to offer this. In such cases we will offer a refund of the, ‘with friends’ charge only.
Please note that whilst you may have certain requests for accommodation/pitch numbers or area, these are requests only, and not guarantees. We reserve the right to move your reservation to another accommodation/pitch of the same standard. We are unable to guarantee any specific accommodation/pitch numbers or if you booked more than one unit that these will be next to each other; unless you paid a surcharge to guarantee this (see ‘choosing your pitch’ and ‘with friends’ sections above). We reserve the right to amend your reservation into alternative accommodation, sometimes more than one property and to a different standard, should we deem it necessary. We will notify you of any changes and our reasons for this at our earliest convenience. No compensation will be paid in this instance.

Should there be no availability elsewhere, then we even reserve the right to refuse you a pitch. No refund would be offered.
Gazebos may not be permitted on the pitch if its size reduces the clear space required by fire regulations. Please check this when booking your pitch. We do not permit washing lines on any pitch.
On hard standing pitches, awnings and/or ancillary structures must fit on the awning pad and shouldn’t be bigger than the tourer or motorhome. We reserve the right to ask that awnings & gazebos that are deemed too large for a pitch are removed.
We do not permit the use of chemical toilet sanitising products containing formaldehyde.
If you are bringing a vehicle with you, please advise us when booking your holiday. For touring reservations, we charge per vehicle on site, which includes motorhomes and campervans.
Cars towing a touring caravan are charged as one vehicle.
If you are bringing more than one motorised vehicle (for example if you are bringing your motorhome and a car or are coming in two cars) you have to inform us at the time of booking and additional charges may apply.
For holiday homes we allow a maximum of 2 vehicles per booking, with only one allowed to be parked next to the holiday home if/where parking is available.
If you are bringing any additional motorised vehicles, you have to make us aware if this prior to arrival and there will be an additional charge for this. This includes, but is not limited to, jet skis, speedboats and cars over the amount allowed on the booking.
The maximum speed limit across the site is 5mph for all vehicles and must be always adhered to; all park roads and areas are subject to Road Traffic Law.
No driving is permitted generally around the site between midnight and 7am (unless unavoidable) to ensure minimum noise disturbances to other guests. Please respect the peaceful enjoyment of other guests.
Electric/Hybrid Vehicle Charging
Charging an electric or hybrid vehicle from an electric outlet in your caravan or on your pitch is not permitted without prior authorisation. Due to the extra energy/load required to charge an EV you are required to apply for a charging permit prior to arrival, for which a surcharge of £15.00 per day will be added to your booking, to be paid in advance. Charging an electric/hybrid vehicle without prior authorisation will result in a penalty charge of £35.00 per day (or part thereof).
We are also happy to direct guests to the nearest available public charging points.
Please note that our holiday home and touring pitch electrical infrastructure is not set up specifically with EV charging in mind; so we cannot provide suitably rated, protected and certified measures for plugging an EV and that even where charges are made for EV charging that you do so entirely at your own risk.
42. Commercial Vehicles
By law we cannot permit guests to work from site. Our license extends to short term holiday accommodation only. Where there is a genuine holiday booking and a guest has no option but to use their own commercial vehicle we can make an exception so long as:
- The guests do not work from site
- Are not here for their own business means
- The commercial vehicle is in a good state of repair and is no larger than a standard panel van (e.g. Transit)
- Is parked in one of the site car parks rather than on a pitch if requested by Hendra staff.
- The guest allows us to make the necessary checks to confirm the above e.g. Allow us to confirm the van is clear of tools etc
Hendra reserve the right to refuse entry to any person or vehicle under the managements discretion.
43. Towing/Jump Starting Vehicles
There are times when, due to the nature of the grass environment, vehicles may get stuck in the mud. We can assist with the towing of vehicles from pitches during normal office hours. If assistance is required, you will be asked to sign a disclaimer as we are unable to accept responsibility for any damage caused when giving assistance. A £50 charge may apply, but we reserve the right to cover further costs at the managements discretion.
We can assist with jump starting vehicles from on site during normal office hours. If assistance is required, you will be asked to sign a disclaimer as we are unable to accept responsibility for any damage caused when giving assistance. A £30 charge may apply, but we reserve the right to cover further costs at the managements discretion.
We do provide parking on site for vehicles.
In most cases one vehicle can be parked next to the holiday home or on your pitch, but there are some areas where this is not possible. If you require adjacent parking, you must tell us in advance of your holiday, so we can ensure your requirements can be met if possible.
If your unit does not have adjacent parking, or for additional cars, there are car parks around the site for you to use. The car parks can be identified on the park map.
Any supermarket or shopping delivery drivers must be able to contact the guest directly, as we cannot take in any shopping on a guest’s behalf. For all guest’s privacy, we are unable to direct drivers to a plot/accommodation. We ask all guests to arrange to meet their driver at reception to collect the delivery and recommend providing the supermarket with a contact number. No deliveries should be scheduled before the check-in time to your static caravan or touring pitch, and we will not be able to allow you to check-in early or store items for you prior to your caravan or pitch being available.
Any parcels may be accepted in our administration building however these must be correctly labelled with the guest details and booking numbers. We recommend guests use a click and collect point nearby for deliveries. Hendra will not accept any liability for parcels delivered to us. We reserve the right to decline any deliveries. It is the guest’s responsibility to collect any deliveries and we are not responsible for returning/forwarding mail in case this is forgotten. Parcel will be held for no longer than 7 days after which they will be disposed of.
46. Personal Property
Hendra accept no responsibility for personal property left on site. If items are left behind, we can arrange for them to be returned subject to payment of postage costs, which will be confirmed before the item is posted. We can retain the cost from the returnable key deposit (see ‘key deposit’ section) on your instructions or we can take a card payment over the phone.
Any property left behind will be kept for no more than 7 days after departure. Please note, items in (bin)bags or any items that may be conceived as left on purpose to be disposed off may be thrown away and Hendra accepts no responsibility for property left on site.
We only sell alcohol to persons 18 years or over. Membership passes do not qualify as proof of age; we reserve the right to request to see an approved form of identification – passport, photo driving license or valid identification card when purchasing alcohol on site. We reserve the right to refuse to serve alcohol to anyone, regardless of age, at the management’s discretion.
We also reserve the right to refuse entry into any facility, or the provision of any service or accommodation to any person if they appear to be physically or mentally impaired by the consumption of alcohol or use of recreational drugs, (including appearing hung-over or smelling of drugs or alcohol), and are considered a risk to, or have a potential detrimental impact on, themselves, visitors, guests, staff, or property.
All our facilities and accommodation are strictly non-smoking. A smoking area is provided opposite the main arcade. E-cigarettes are also not permitted in any of our facilities.
49. Electricity Supply
The electricity supply to our electric pitches, Grand Premium pitches, Super pitches, Silver Leaf and Gold leaf pitches is nominally 16 amps / 240 v, however we reserve the right to reduce this capacity without warning and cannot guarantee a full supply during periods of high demand or under conditions out of our control.
50. Feeling Unwell
If you are ever feeling unwell whilst holidaying with us then please let us know. We want to protect our staff and guests, so if we become aware or have reason to believe that you may be unwell with a contagious disease or illness, then yourself and your party may be asked to go home. If it is not possible for you to go home, then you and your party may be required to isolate to prevent the disease or illness being transmitted to any guests or staff. This may incur additional charges if your stay has to be extended.
51. Special Offers/Discounts
Only one discount or special offer can be applied per booking. Once booked, any offers that may become available subsequently, such as last-minute offers, cannot be applied to an existing booking unless this was part of the booking terms of a special offer, in which instances the terms of the offer apply to the booking. Once payment in full has been received, no refunds can be made for changes in price.
52. Loyalty Card Membership Levels
We offer a tiered level loyalty card system to guests who book directly with Hendra* which entitles the account holder to different loyalty offers depending on the type of loyalty card level they hold.
- BLUE – Stayed at Hendra for consecutive years for the last 3+ years.
- GREEN – Stayed at Hendra for consecutive years for the last 5+ years.
- GOLD – Stayed at Hendra for consecutive years for the last 10+ years.
Loyalty levels are automatically applied to guests who book directly with Hendra*, and entitles the account holder to different loyalty offers depending on the type of loyalty card level that they hold. The loyalty card entitles you to offers on advance holiday bookings in the future, and comes pre-loaded with cash that can be spent in our on-site venues. The offers that you receive will depend on your loyalty level.
Please note, these loyalty cards apply solely to the booking account holder (lead party member) according to our booking system records. Multiple bookings under one account do not entitle other party members to a loyalty card. Each qualifying stay must have been a minimum of a paid for short break (3nights), booked and paid for by named booking account holder and made directly with Hendra. Loyalty levels are calculated based on previous years stayed and do not include any bookngs for the current year. A valid membership card must be shown in conjunction with a matching and valid loyalty card to redeem offers.
Any credit given on a card is valid only for the cards issuing year and can only be spent in the following onsite facilities: The Oasis Pool, Terrace Bar & Restaurant, Marios Pizzaria, Fish & Chip Shop, Henry’s Playloft and The Venue.
We reserve the right to vary or retract any and all loyalty based offers at any time and without notice.
*Any holidays booked with third-party companies such as Hoseasons, the Sun, Breakfree or Campsites.co.uk are excluded from the loyalty scheme.

57. Photography and Filming
Please note you’re not allowed to film or take photographs in our swimming pools and changing areas. Hendra is a well-known Park and we often get requests from TV and other companies to film/photograph on the parks, many of which we accommodate. Hendra also takes our own promotional films and photographs throughout the year anywhere in the park. We will try and make guests aware of when we are filming or taking photographs, and we will try to make sure that this doesn’t affect your holiday. With this agreement, you give us the rights (free of charge) to anything containing your image (or the image of the other people with you) that’s made while you’re with us. (This doesn’t affect your own photos or videos ). If you don’t want to be in shot, please try and stay away from the filming or photo shooting area. If you or someone in your family does stray into a photo or video without meaning to and you want us to remove it from our library, we’ll do our best to do so.
Other Things We Would Like You To Know…
The company reserves the right to enter caravans under special circumstances or emergencies, at any time.
We do not permit gazebos, tents, washing lines or similar items on the grass area by your holiday home.
Please ensure BBQ’s are positioned so they do not burn the grass or become a fire hazard; they should be kept off the ground and in a well-ventilated area. BBQs should not be used or stored within any type of accommodation as this can cause deadly carbon monoxide poisoning. Disposable BBQs should be disposed of only when completely cold.
We do not knowingly allow anyone to stay who has a record of any order indicating antisocial behaviour, violence, abuse, public disorder, or criminal damage or any other form of antisocial behaviour; or is a convicted sex offender, subject to the notification requirements of the Sexual Offences Act 2003; or subject to a Risk of Sexual Harm Order or Child Abduction Notice. By making a booking, you are confirming that the above does not apply to anyone in your party. If it later becomes known to us that this is not the case, we reserve the right to cancel your booking and require you, and all members of your party, to leave the park, without refund.
We reserve the right to refuse entry to the park where we believe one or more persons within the booking party may compromise the health, wellbeing or hygiene of our site, guests or staff, or where site hygiene and social distancing rules are not adhered to. In such circumstances, we reserve the right to request written medical evidence or apply our own test criteria, including but not limited to temperature checks. In all cases the Park Manager’s decision is final and there will be no right to a refund where no entry to, or eviction from the site results.
We are not responsible nor issue refunds for events beyond our control including but not restricted to extreme events such as war and acts of terrorism (and threat of these), civil war, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or extreme weather conditions, the act of any government or other national or local authority and all similar events outside our or our supplier’s control.
